June 2022 surgery buddies



Recommended Posts

Best wishes and positive thoughts to everyone whose surgery is today and this week! Congratulations for sticking with it through the tests, appointments, waiting, etc.
🎉 I HAVE TWO MORE ‘SLEEPS’ 🎉🎉TIL MY WEDNESDAY SURGERY🎉
Continued best wishes and healing thoughts to those who are recovering.
I did a lot of retail therapy yesterday to keep myself occupied. I even started a re-styling project for a favorite piece of furniture. DH even got onboard with it because, well, he ‘just’ knew that it would be best if he did. 😂 LOL
I had the tiniest morsel of birthday cake at a birthday we celebrated after dinner yesterday. Today and tomorrow I’m at school, this afternoon is my COVID test.
I’m keeping busy till Wednesday the best I can.
Thank you to everyone here who provided the most useful diversion and information while I trudged toward approval and surgery!

Not at all! I hope we all do amazing. I have two weeks until I fly to San Antonio. It's getting a bit real at this point.

Went for my pre-op today, surgery date is June 7th. I'm so ready for this surgery - just nervous about the recovery time.

My surgery is out-patient because of covid. Has anyone here been released the same day? How was your experience?

My surgery is 7th too. It's at 8:30 am. I'm just trying to breathe because I'm feeling super nervous. But we got this.

Here I am on the appropriate board for a June 6 surgery date. I previously posted this on the May board. 🤦🏻‍♀️
Anyway, my Covid test is negative. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
Already emailed the results to my surgeon’s office.

My 2nd oldest daughter who has gone through med school, reminded me of this:
Narcotics deprive you of your deeper stages of sleep that your body really needs to heal.

That being said, being able to use a non-narcotic will help one recover more quickly.

🎉2 MORE SLEEPS TIL SURGERY🎉

I'm scheduled for 10:30. It's normal for us to second guess the choice. I hope all goes well with your surgery 🙌

Start my 2 week pre op diet tomorrow, 50g carbs or less, 1,000 cal or less and no less than 30g protien. Daily for 2 weeks.

My pre-op diet is not as restrictive as others. Not sure why. But I'm not complaining.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
